Journalist and author George Monbiot has delivered a compelling new TED Talk: “The new political story that could change everything”.

TED explains: “To get out of the mess we’re in, we need a new story that explains the present and guides the future, says author George Monbiot. Drawing on findings from psychology, neuroscience and evolutionary biology, he offers a new vision for society built around our fundamental capacity for altruism and cooperation. This contagiously optimistic talk will make you rethink the possibilities for our shared future.”

Monbiot is talking about the need for a new narrative about our economic system: a core component of WEAll’s strategy for system change. You can find out more about our narratives work in the WEAll vision brochure.
